What is Social Welfare?

Social Welfare economics considers the distribution of resources and how it affects an economy's overall sense of well-being. With different optimal states existing in an economy in terms of the allocation of resources, welfare economics seeks the state that will create the highest overall level of social satisfaction among its members. The Grey Power organisation seeks to ensure that the elderly are not discriminated against in the distribution of economic resources by the Government of the day.
